Is the US next?
#6
I think that the journalist's point was that the Canadian system is not worth copying because it has failed. My take on his position as far as the US is concerned is that there are concerns among Canadians that they will have fewer options available to them if the US goes single payer. It looks like a well-founded, though not altruistic, concern.
 
I wonder about Spooky's question; why is there such a wait? I wonder if the single payer system has made the practice of medicine so unattractive to physicians that they aren't willing to bother with it, or if the compensation is so low that it isn't worth spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on a degree.
 
Socialism is already well-entrenched in the US. I doubt it will be long before socialized medicine is here. I'm not sure it will be better than what we have now in the long run, but I am willing to listen to both sides of the issue.
